Photo Release - Father’s Day and The Leaving Is Easy

SPOT Messenger Ideal for Hunters, Fishermen, Climbers and Sailors


Covington, LA (May 31, 2012) - The most popular Father’s Day gifts are those that allow Dad the time and gear to enjoy the great outdoors. But if another set of golf clubs, grilling utensils or horseshoes is simply too tame for the Dad in your life, give him a SPOT PERSONAL GPS SATELLITE MESSENGER™ - the Father’s Day gift that allows him to get lost in his adventurous outdoor hobbies without actually getting lost.

SPOT Satellite Messenger is a rugged, pocket-sized personal tracker that works where cell phones do not.

SPOT’s many communication features allow families peace-of-mind while Dad is off the grid because:

  • SPOT Checks In by letting others know Dad is OK and has arrived safely
  • SPOT Tracks by sharing Dad’s location in real time via Google Maps™
  • SPOT Communicates by allowing Dad to send custom messages to family and friends
  • SPOT Rescues by transmitting Dad’s location to a local rescue coordination center in an emergency situation (SPOT has initiated more than 1,800 rescues globally)

A Father’s Day gift for the whole family, SPOT is the gear Dad - and the home front - need to truly relax and enjoy his outdoor adventure.

SPOT Satellite Messenger is available at Cabela’s, REI, Bass Pro Shops, West Marine, Best Buy and other leading outdoor retailers starting at $99.95 plus service plan. For more information and a retail location near you, visit
